in the British Museum preserves the whole from beginning to end, but is
terribly corrupt. The purpose and argument of the work seem to be
that Amenemhat, who has already virtually associated Usertesen with
himself in the kingdom, determines, in consequence of a plot against his
life, to insure his son's succession by announcing it in a formal manner.
He has laboured strenuously and successfully for his own glory and for
the good of his people, but in return is scarcely saved from ignominious
dethronement or assassination through a conspiracy formed in his own
household. The moral to be drawn from this is pointed out to his son
with considerable bitterness and scorn in the " Teaching," in which,
however, Usertesen is promised a brilliant reign if ho will attend to his
father's instructions (A. Z. xxxiv. 35).

Dr. Krall had the good fortuno to discover in the Graf collection
from the Faiyflm, acquired by Archduke Rainer, a number of fragments
of a story written in at least twenty-two columns. He has now given
a very full and interesting report of the document with a complete
glossary, &c. (Rainer Mitth. vi. 19), and promises a complete edition
shortly. The copy dates from the 1st century a.d., but the story relates
to the time of the XXfllrd Dyn. (c. 800 b.c.), and indicates at least a
moderate acquaintance with the condition of Egypt in that already
distant period. Pharaoh, residing at Tanis, is named Petubastis. The
beginning of the story is lost, but apparently a gi*eat prince named
Eiorherou has recently died, leaving six sons in prominent positions in
Egypt. One, named Pimai the Less, was in Heliopolis; another, Min-
nemai, was prince of Elephantine ; Mentubaal was in Syria, Ruru in
Busiris, . . . rokhf in Sais, &c. The armour of Eiorherou was kept by
Pimai at Heliopolis, but was stolen away by Kaamenophis of Mendes.
